F-14B Tomcat

Posted by Paul On December - 28 - 2000

12/28/13 I built this model for my neighbor last month.  It's his favorite aircraft and I must admit I love it too.  This is the 1/72 HobbyBoss kit and is just a real jem, easy to put together and looks great when it's finished.  The only problem I had was with the decals which would just tear apart with the slightest tension and did not respond to setting solution at all.  I also used Eduards masking set for the canopy.  After putting the kit together I sanded down the seams, sprayed it with Tamiya Fine Surface Primer then shot it with Tamiya Light Grey.  After than I shot it with Future and put the decals on.  Then another coat of Future and finally finished it off with ModelMaster flat.  I shot the front windscreen with Tamiya clear green to tint it.  The decal scheme was for the Jolly Rogers as that just looks cool.  Now on to the pictures…
